Spike Lee Apologizes For Tweeting Wrong Address, For The Wrong George Zimmerman
One couple’s life is Sanford, Florida was terribly upset. Producer/Director Spike Lee decided to tweet the address and phone number for a William George Zimmerman, no relation to George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin in February.
The couple and their son were so inundated with phone calls and threats that they have since had to put their home up for sale and move out. In reality, Spoke Lee is pretty lucky that nothing bad happened to that 70 year old couple, Elaine and David McClain, or their son. Think about that for a minute, Spike Lee’s entire life could have changed because of a “mis-tweet.”
Well, don’t feel too bad for the couple just yet. Spike has called the family to apologize and has paid to relocate them, and they also have come to an agreement for a settlement. Elaine McClain said. “When he called us, you could just tell he really felt bad about it. And it was just a slip, and I just know that he really, really has been concerned.”
Spike’s latest tweet? “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake. Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace.
